Wonderful Day!

Today was a wonderful day. I got some sleep last night after having many nights with very fitful sleep...

Woke up to a gray, overcast, sprinkled day...perfect day to sit on the patio and knit...but that's not what I did.

Okay, update on knitting:

Finished socks for sil (no I'm mentioning a name here, not sure if she reads this or not and I do want her to be surprised).

Two completed pairs of socks; Celtic Pennies (a YarnYenta pattern for a KAL on www.ravelry.com) and Whirlpool Socks (from the book Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn) ~ these socks have been washed and blocked and are now looking pretty good. They'll be taken to the fairgrounds on Friday.

A slew of dishcloths have been knitted up for a certain person who asked for them and perhaps a couple of other 'certain people' (I haven't decided yet). Dishcloths/Washcloths are so simple to knit and crochet...I started one this morning just before leaving to meet with some ladies at B&N ~ had it finished and another one started before I left for home a couple hours later ~ and I put it down quite a few times during our chatting.

Another pair of socks has been started: pattern is off www.knitty.com ~ the fall 09 issue that just came out...Hat-heel sock by Kathleen Sperling ~ it is an interesting pattern and I'm enjoying 'the challenge'.

Okay, one day I'll learn how to do links...yeah right...like I have time to figure this stuff out...I have to figure out what to feed hubby for dinner while he watches Monday Night Football but first guess I'd best go put the clothes in the dryer so hubby will have clean socks to wear tomorrow.

Which reminds ~ this past Thursday the Pittsburgh Steelers played the Tennessee Titans and won! Hubby wore his Steelers socks that I knitted him this summer...so you all know what that means...I'd best have them ready for him to wear for each game this year...
